Complete Guide to Heat vs. Blazers and Saturday's NBA Action

Saturday night's NBA slate is loaded with 12 games, including an intriguing cross-conference matchup that will pit LeBron James and the Miami Heat against LaMarcus Aldridge and the Portland Trail Blazers. 

But the fun doesn't end there.  

The Indiana Pacers will look to win back-to-back games against the Brooklyn Nets when they host Jason Kidd's hapless squad in the second leg of a home-and-home while the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans will clash in a Western Conference showdown that features two of the game's elite bigs going toe-to-toe.  

So if you need to sneak away from family for a few hours during the extended holiday weekend, Saturday's lineup has everything you need to kick back and relax.
